    OUR SHOP Guides

    The Foundation of the State Arboretum’s OUR SHOP is primarily a volunteer-staffed retail operation/unofficial welcome center for the State Arboretum of Virginia and is open on weekends only from May through December, 1-4.  Shop Guides often serve as the first point of contact for visitors, should enjoy meeting and greeting the public, and answering basic questions about the Arboretum, Blandy and the University of Virginia.  OUR SHOP Guides are also responsible for opening/closing OUR SHOP, merchandise sales transactions and other duties involved in maintaining a welcoming environment. Income from merchandise sales helps support FOSA programs. Regularly scheduled shifts are 3 hours. Arboretum orientation and OUR SHOP training provided.
